(Capitol Hill) [Senator Edward GURNEY - asks if President ever told those present at following mtgs. that Dean told him about Watergate matter.] [EHRLICHMAN - states President' reaction after alleged meeting with Dean wasn't one of full knowledge about Watergate.

Haldeman knew something about Dean telling President Watergate story.] [GURNEY - questions if Haldeman ever told Ehrlichman about conversations during mtgs. with President, Dean, and Haldeman.] [EHRLICHMAN - states Haldeman said Dean's testimony untrue.

[EHRLICHMAN - says President could have been getting as many reports as possible before making move on Watergate.] [GURNEY - asks if President ever asked Ehrlichman about Watergate.] [EHRLICHMAN - discloses President called him late in the game to turn over Dean's responsibility of gathering Watergate information to him (Ehrlichman).]
